Jesus, George Washington and San Diego’s Medicine Struggle

In bonnie dumanis, District Attorney on November 17, 2010 at 5:37 pm
It is indeed ironic that Bonnie Dumanis, San Diego’s District Attorney and a member of the Log Cabin Republican Club, in her vicious pursuit of medical marijuana users, is at odds with Abraham Lincoln who refused to approve a proposed prohibition on cannabis use.

Kennedy, who used cannabis for his back pain, he was going to legalize it during his second term.

The Cultural Wars Continue in San Diego

By: Rocky Neptun

San Diego’s District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis struts onto the stage, her swagger, her measured pace, her menacing stare in front of the cameras reminds me of the persona John Wayne created on his way to becoming an American icon.

In his brief 28 years, Eugene Davidovich has followed all the rules, adhered to the law and lived an exemplary life. Yet, today, he stands broken, alone, homeless, persecuted and in daily pain. Clean-cut, honest spoken, go-getting; he was a child of the American dream, going from good son to impressive student to serving his country in the military.

DA's Budgets Go Up While Others Go Down

The District Attorney's Office's budget has risen significantly while other public agencies are reorganizing and slashing costs.

The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office proudly notes that in 2008 and 2009 it received prestigious Workplace Excellence awards as one of San Diego’s most outstanding places to work.
